Can a legislative chamber be used for purposes other than the sittings of the House? Does the chamber have a certain sanctity, as the seat of the highest representative body in the state, which is inviolable? These questions have arisen in the backdrop of a meeting of the Haryana assembly, which was addressed by Jain religious leader, TarunSagar, on August 26. Media reports say that the monk who appeared in the nude was seated on a dais above the seat of the governor and speaker. The address by the venerable monk marked the beginning of the monsoon session of the Haryana Vidhan Sabha.
